Suggestions on a good invoicing software for small business

Feb 11, 2020 12:37AM PST

Hi All,

Am just starting out with my business, just moved away from serving big organizations and started a consulting firm. I have got a few clients whom I need to invoice every week.

It's a pain to use a template as I am unable to keep track of things and it's a pain to be honest. Tried a few invoicing systems but the trial versions are over now and they are a bit on the complex & expensive side. Looking for something around $5 - 10 per month range.

Any suggestions?

I'd prefer cloud based, not wanting a desktop based version.

How about using Excel to keep track of your hours and a mail-merge in Word to print or email the invoices? Assuming you already use those programs for your consulting activities it's free.

Thanks Kees. The only problem is keeping a track of who's paid, who's missed the due date and stuff. I missed out on a couple of invoice payments, they delayed it by almost a month Sad
I see what you are saying, i don't mind paying a few $ (just a few Happy ) if it saves time & effort to an extent, mainly following up these unpaid ones.

Don't get me wrong, there are few good one, but I like
1) Mr.Biller
2) Wave Accounting

MrBiller is an easy tool and wave is a bit of all accounting software with credit card processing & payroll services.

We use Wave now. Making invoices with wave is very easy, just create one and send, it will be over like a breeze. And keeping track of payments abd due amounts are also easy.

I have used Zoho, Invoicely, But, I loved using mrbiller, it was fun to use. It was very inspirational to watch those charts in it, and our company also had custom made email template at MrBiller similar to our paper invoice. But when we had our merger and became a part of BIG company, our new management needed us to change to Wave, because it comes from a bigger corporation and they were using Wave for quite some time for their invoices and payments. But, I still miss MrBiller, even after almost 1 year!

One more thing : MrBiller's professionalism, and customer service : When we were to move to wave, we asked MrBIller for our data : clients and their emails (we had almost 60 of them) and they send us in all our clients details in a csv, within 24 hours - no questions asked!.
